Gimme Questions

Alright, if I am going to ask questions of Beth DeHamel, give them to me now. I'm not going to have time to give her, like, a hundred questions on her way out of the door, but I'll pick the best/most relevant, I promise. I'm guessing I'll have three to five questions, that's what I'm counting on. You guys are better at the mad deets and specifics, so I'll take ideas from you. Do tell me, what do I ask our CFO?

Wow, They're Really Splurging Here

The Eastside Streetcar opens on the 22nd of September and the city is going all-out. They're having essentially a giant worship ceremony with vendors and free streetcar and speeches and effing museums. It's crazy how many tax-payer dollars are not going to good use to go to this. DESPICABLE...

...I say as if I'm not going to be there at ten sharp.

Got An Email From DeHamel

I'll summarize it since I'm not sure what the proper credo is on relaying other people's emails (even if they are to me).

In essence, she said she could not meet with me personally, but she 'encouraged' me to attend the board meeting tomorrow where she was making a presentation for "Fund Balance and Contingency" and offered to talk to me about it after the meeting.

I just gave her an honest reply; I told her that I was not sure if I could make it to the board meeting because I was transporting my sister to a day camp and I doubted that TriMet would be able to get me there in time. Isn't that sort of ironic, TriMet?

I'll make it towards the end of the meeting, because hell I'm going to give testimony since Public Forum is open.

SOME INTRESTING FACTS

It cost NASA $2.5 billion to fly 250 million miles, which is $10 per mile.

It cost TriMet $1.49 billion to build 7.3 miles of light rail from Portland to Milwaukie, which is $204,110,099 per mile.

TriMet's stupidity... PRICELESS!
